Head Coach for Talent, Paul Murgatroyd, said of the selections: 
“After a difficult and challenging year, when all international junior competitions were either postponed or cancelled, we are hopeful this summer that we will be able to send our best juniors overseas once again to represent their country and to gain valuable international experience. This is an exciting group of talented individuals, many of whom will be making their international debuts, and it will be interesting to see how they cope with the challenges of what promises to be a tough blend of East European forests. I wish them all the best for the races ahead and we will all be keeping our fingers crossed that conditions will allow us to return to international competition this summer.”
